How can James Harrison be fined for the below hit? Last time I checked, this is the way you are taught to hit starting from the first practice of midget football.
If I recall correctly the technique is to drive your face mask through the players chest with your arms wrapped. The hit below looks like picture perfect form to me. If you can’t hit the player in the head and you can’t hit the player around the knees, and now you can’t hit the player in the midsection then how are you supposed to tackle?
